I need to make cake box cookies weekly. I forget how much I like them!

I’m VERY picky when it comes to my cookies. There are a few requirements every single cookie has to have if I want to post it on my blog:

  1. Flavor. They have to have flavor! I’ve tried WAY too many bland cookies. Blah.
  2. Texture. I like a nice and chewy cookie ?
  3. Softness. Yes. SOFT cookies.
  4. Thickness. No flat cookies on Salt & Baker, friends.

Let’s go over what you need to make these Devil’s Food Cake cake box cookies.

What ingredients do you need to make Cake Box Cookies?

  1. A cake mix. Duh. (Devil’s Food Cake is the best!)
  2. Eggs, specifically 2.
  3. Oil.
  4. Mix ins. Not necessary, but worth it. For these cookies I went with mint chips.

We’re approaching St. Patricks Day so I thought the green mint chips were festive.

This is my attempt at being a cute and clever food mom. Although my friend Beth has some amazing St. Patricks day food ideas. I need to step up my game next year!

Mint chips being poured into chocolate cookie dough batter.

Mix the above ingredients together, scoop into dough balls and CHILL the dough!

If you don’t chill the dough you’ll pathetically flat cookies. Chilling the dough AND baking at 375°F ensures the cookies will be thick and less flat.

Mint Chip Cake Box Cookies are so easy to make! Kids and adults will love them!
